APEGBC Dam Safety Guidelines Updated to Include Mining Dams

Posted on April 9, 2014
The APEGBC Professional Practice Guidelines – Legislated Dam Safety Reviews in BC, first published and posted on the APEGBC website in July 2013, have recently been reviewed and revised.

These guidelines were developed to establish the standard of practice to be followed when carrying out dam safety reviews in BC for water reservoir dams in response to BC’s Dam Safety Regulation 44/2000.  The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations provided funding, technical and administrative support for the development of these guidelines.

In May 2013 the BC Ministry of Energy and Mines contracted with APEGBC to revise the existing guidelines. This Ministry provided funding and technical and administrative support so the guidelines could also address professional practice for dam safety reviews for mining dams.

The revisions have been completed with input from a group of experts in this field of practice. The revised APEGBC Professional Practice Guidelines – Legislated Dam Safety Review in BC are now available.
